My favorite app!

Love this app! I bought/upgraded to the Pro and really value it. Helps me stay organized and on top of my time. Terrific app! :)

Really helps with time management

I love this app, it helps me see when I go over time in my activities and track how much time I’ve spent doing each over the past couple weeks. I even emailed about a new feature to see the percentage of total day, week, and month hours in the chats section and got a response immediately that it would be added to the potential features list. I hope to see that one day. All in all I love it. It’s not tracking my time for me, it’s a tool I need to be diligent about using. I think that’s a good thing to help build discipline. Anything worth doing isn't always easy!

Runs 24 hours for weeks???

So this was left running unattended. Even when app was closed?? To run up 864 hours straight? Humans don’t sleep? Really guys? No prompts to alert me? Also now all my previous data is skewed... and I don’t see a way to delete that obvious chunk of mistaken time recorded... other than that it’s good. 😉

Developer Response ,

The Pro version offers reminders. Other than that, when you start an event running, we simply note the time it starts. The app then doesn't actually do anything until you next open it. So a timer will appear to be actively running when you're viewing the screens, but in reality nothing changes with that record in the internal database until you next edit it.

You can tap on the currently running event on Now and choose an end date to finish it.

For old events that are no longer running and that you wish to edit, go in to Then and tap on the event, then set the start/finish times to whatever suits.

Check out our FAQ for this (there's a link in the Settings tab) as it has screenshots and might be more helpful than this comment.
